Randall, David – National Association of Scholars, 2018
The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has analyzed college common readings since 2010. Common reading selections partly reflect the constraints on their selection committees.

Randall, David – National Association of Scholars, 2016
This document extends the National Association of Scholars' (NAS's) critique of the College Board from Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH) to Advanced Placement European History (APEH).

Randall, David – National Association of Scholars, 2016
